About the artist:

Currently Eddie Davis paints at Airbrush Headquarters in Destin, Florida, and lives in nearby Shalimar. Growing up in the 1970’s and 1980’s, Davis’s main influence came from Heavy Metal, Creepy, Eerie and Thrasher skateboarding magazines and The Savage Sword of Conan art.

“My sense of proportion and dynamic lighting came from trying to emulate great artists such as Richard Corben, Bernie Wrightson, Tim Vigil and Pushead. I always admired how they could use dark subject matter to convey emotion and a sense of presence and tension. For me the most profound and fun part of the whole artistic process is when you get to that place where the painting tells you what it wants and you’re just adding the colour and keeping it moving.”
